    Oh please. More innuendo.

    His provincial coaches haven't a bad word to say about him, he's great with young fans, he comes across well in the few interviews that he's done and, most importantly, he's tearing it up on the field. I'll trust what I know rather than unsubstantiated insinuation thanks.

    He wasnt in great form earlier in the season.
    He didnt seem fit enough either at the start of the season.

    I'd hope that its all sorted this year and he has a great season. There is no doubting his ability and the speed and finishing power.
    Yes, Yada Yada some would say we could have won the slam had he been involved but thats hard to prove.

    joe won the chaampionship and hard to really argue with a coach after that.


    ps. caps button is fecked after wife spilt coffee. its going to be an expensive cup

    Fair enough. Now, if he'd just done the same with the likes of Jordi Murphy and Dave Kearney before he started selecting them for the 6Ns I'd be less inclined to question his judgment of Zebo.

    You could do that to any player in any squad. Zebo has the x factor and with Bod now gone and Zebo picking up from where he left off last season, the Irish backline needs his ability to do something different. Daverage, Trimble (at least hee is solid) et al are good players but Zebo is a game breaker.

    How exactly has Schmidt done that? Zebo didn't play in the AIs or six nations.

    I'd say Joe Schimdt is comfortably the best thing that ever happened to Zebo because he's the first manager who didn't indulge him and tidied up the areas of his game that needed rectifying. He's an immeasurably better player in 12 months and that's no concidence in my view. He might actually become that world class winger sooner rather then later
    How exactly has Schmidt done that? Zebo didn't play in the AIs or six nations. All Schmidt did was persist in picking a winger who got run down by a second row forward while Zebo was playing for Munster.

    He must be because otherwise we'd have to admit that he's fast becoming the best winger in the country and Joe's an eejit for over-looking him for Daverage et al.
    You could be strung up in parts of this country for putting Joe and Eejit in the same sentence:_panic__by_bad_bloo (take it back!! take it back!!)

    He showed the same composure when he did his little heel flick against Wales in the 6Ns, and he took the one chance that came his way against Toulon last season too. His composure seems to be there regardless of the opposition and the occasion.

    A fair point in general, but the specific case - taking a ball behind him one-handed without slowing - isn't dependent on the quality of the opposition for the skill; it's just top-notch individual skill, regardless of against whom it's done.

    I'd have to say I thought the little tap-dance without slowing to stand the defender up for his first was every bit as good as the third.
